We have two tickets up for grabs for the Sydney or Melbourne screening (dates below). All you need to do is “SHARE” this post and/or “TAG” a friend who you think would like to go.

A True Mountain Man

The master of technical mountaineering, Conrad has over 30 years of climbing and mountaineering experience under his belt, and is still chasing first ascents. He’s a visionary, a champion for the environment, a pioneer and the best comrade you’ll find at 25,000 feet—he’s dedicated every ounce of his being to this life.

Conrad will present his life of adventure, sharing what inspired him to pursue a career in the mountains along with tales and stunning footage of climbing the world’s most remote and challenging peaks, from expeditions on Meru to Queen Maud Land in Antarctica. Following the presentation will be an exclusive interview with Conrad, conducted by The North Face adventurer, Justin Jones.

First Time To Australia

On his visit to Australia, Conrad Anker says, “Australia captures the imagination. Since I was a youngster I’ve longed to visit this continent and the cheerful people that make it special. Thanks to The North Face I’ll have the chance to visit the Blue Mountains and share my story of adventure and alpinism with audiences in Sydney and Melbourne. I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and experiencing Australia.”

Up Close and Personal

The North Face will also be hosting an up-close and personal experience with Conrad Anker set in the Megalong Valley in NSW, for storytelling & fodder by the campfire. Please reach out if you have a team member interested in attending this special event.

Supporting Mountain Youth Services Team

To support the Mountain Youth Services Team (MYST), $10 from each ticket will be donated to aid the development of their Outdoor Explore bush adventure therapy program. Located in the heart of the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park, MYST has developed a specialisation in the delivery of bush adventure therapy programs over the past 25 years.

The program will give children and families an opportunity for a digital detox and a chance to learn, explore and discover the many benefits of bush adventure through a range of outdoor activities.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • Dreamy loam is hard to beat when it comes to riding surfaces and the Aquila feels right at home digging through it! 💥 #onzatires #loam
  • Check out the full review in our bio 👍. Have you tried merino? Generally, you can get a bit smelly with synthetic fabrics whereas @monsroyale merino handles body odours very well. We experienced zero odours on the trails or in the car on the way home where it usually starts to pong. We felt as fresh as when we first pulled them on. The beauty of this is that you don't need to bring a change of clothing with you. You can hop off the bike and into the local bar or cafe without clearing the place out. | Photo: @richardmcgibbon
  • Fusing function and form, @monsroyale merino clothing is a natural, biodegradable and sustainable fibre that outperforms man-made fabrics. Mons Royale clothing is continually tested and refined to ensure it's the best match for your body and performance. | Photos: @richardmcgibbon
  • Testing the Michelin Wild Enduro tyres. Praise the knobbly gods. 🙌 These things are gripper than spider-man’s palm gunk. @michelinbicycle |  Photo: @richardmcgibbon
